Web site: http://mctiernan.com/mcgrix.htm

I hope to make this a very easy way to find links to others looking for the same family. It needs to answer two questions in order to do that smartly. The first is the name, YOB and POB of the earliest McGreal / McGrail ancestor known in Ireland. The second is the name of your immigrant ancestor, the location they settled in and the year of arrival.The townland is the key to links.

The contact's web page if known is on the name of the earliest ancestor. The contact's e mail address is on the contact's name. Some of the contacts listed do not have e mail so I will relay your questions to them. To make the link to others easier to find entries are grouped by County, Barony and down the line to Townland. A Clan web page for the McGreal / McGrail families.

Brand new is the Family Tree Maker JAVA program that shows my entire family, cousins, uncles, aunts and ancestors etc. in a graphical box layout allowing you to search the entire file to see if you are included. That home page is at http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/m/c/t/Michael-P-Mctiernan/tree1.html

The Chief of the McGrail Clan, Greg McGrail has passed on to a better life. May he rest in peace. It is a sad thing to report but Greg has passed last August after a long illness. Greg entered late in the web game but in short order he became one of the best web sites in genealolgy. Within weeks his site was the one every McGrail would go to for any help at all. His help, his outlook and his humor will be missed. Tellurian, the web hosting company in North Jeresy that Greg used has been good enough to put Greg's site at http://www.tellurian.net/mcgrail for the time being.
